Gypsum presents a solo OVR that samples analog photographic work by Basim Magdy exploring narrative, time and history. The earliest work is a set of polaroids from 2014. Magdy takes them on impulse - collecting hundreds of them - and they allow him the formal space to experiment with his photography, from transferring 16mm film stills into instant photography to double exposure and utilizing different filters. We are also showing more recent composite photographs that are produced with his signature chemically altered film stock.
